Much like Herpes, Angry Birds seems to not ever want to leave. It was fun when we all played it and I even bought the Star Wars edition when it came out, but then it slowly went away. Newer games entered our lives and it seemed we had a nostalgia for winged creatures as the world fell in love with Flappy Bird, but where’s the original free to play game that started all this craze. Well, much like an outbreak, Angry Birds has been in the lab working on it’s newest incarnation and yesterday we were all treated as the Angry Birds movie teaser was released

You may make jokes about the movie and how stupid it is, but this is going to make a crap load of money, and there will be a resurgence in the game casing it to make a million dollars off ads.

The movie seems to carry the characters in the game and the name, but that’s it. This movie looks like the kind of film that would pander to the audience and throw in a bunch of game references and 2D shots that mimic the game. The cast has a couple of people I’d enjoy if it was in a different form of media, but don’t think I’ll be watching this movie.
